McKinsey in India

McKinsey was the first global consulting firm to open its doors in India, over 20 years ago. Today we work with most of the country’s largest companies—and have helped several of them become global champions. We partner with government leaders, working to drive growth in the Indian subcontinent, raise living standards, and strengthen education and health. We also develop an unequalled amount of high quality knowledge, data, and analytics, on both global and Asia-specific topics, supported by India-based experts in the McKinsey Global Institute.

Our alumni hold senior roles across business and government—and we are passionate about building India’s future leaders. We recruit the best talent from India’s top schools, invest heavily in their development, and put a major focus on building our clients’ capabilities.

Core to McKinsey’s values is a commitment to give back to the communities we work in, often on a pro bono basis. We have helped launch key institutions such as the Indian School of Business and the Public Health Foundation of India, and we work closely with major nonprofit organisations such as Pratham.

Indian School of Business (ISB)

McKinsey collaborated with business leaders, corporations, and international business schools to establish a world-class business school in India. Today the ISB builds young leaders through its innovative programs, outstanding faculty, and thought leadership.

Public Health Foundation of India (PHFI)

PHFI is an innovative public-private initiative to improve public health in India—by building institutional capacity; strengthening education, training, and research; and contributing to policy development.
